When Store Shelves Collapse, Or Falling Merchandise Strikes You

Years ago, stores did not stack shelves 20 feet high. The worst that could happen was a can of soup falling on your foot.

In today's superstores, however, designed to keep the maximum amount of merchandise on the sales floor, bad things happen. Shelves collapse from the tons of weight they bear. Or merchandise stacked overhead decides to fall just when you are standing below.

It's no joke when you are struck by a skid of any kind of product, even pillows. The sheer mass of the merchandise, and the distance it must fall, can break your back, seriously damage your brain — it can even kill you.
